The Adoption Team’s Young People’s Groups & Young People’s EXTRA

Young People’s Groups

The Adoption Team’s Young People’s Group is a chance for adopted young people to meet and get to know one another, while sharing their voice. The sessions include fun activities, thoughtful discussions where young people can share experiences, and opportunities to help shape services and improve things for adopted young people.

Young people that attend can be supported with topics such as relationships, mental and emotional wellbeing, and adoption-related issues. It is equally focussed on providing a space for young people to get on with one another and make relationships with peers in a supported environment.

The groups meet 3-4 times a year.

The 7-11 group made this painting and word cloud to reflect their last session!

The word cloud says:

  • come again
  • good
  • calm
  • love it
  • very fun
  • yes
  • Awesome
  • sign up now
